Myths of IP - Invitrogen Dynabeads Magnetic Beads Are Expensive
In fact, you can save money using Dynabeads Magnetic Beads. Some people think that Dynabeads magnetic beads are expensive, while slurry is typically considered to be cheap. Yet the price per sample is comparable—or even lower—when you include the pre-clearing step. When you calculate the cost of doing your immunoprecipitation, you typically look at the cost of the solid phase relative to the potential capacity of a fixed volume of that solid phase. Watch the video to better understand how to calculate the actual cost of your immunoprecipitation experiments.
